CR DX-G Digitizer

State-of-the art image quality, with potential dose reduction. By supporting both standard phosphor plates and needlebased detectors, the DX-G unites complete convenience with top image quality, while leveraging the radiography department’s existing investments. With standard phosphor plates, the DX-G delivers excellent image quality. When used with DirectriX needle-based detectors, however, the DX-G provides superb image quality with a much higher Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE). This state-ofthe-art image quality offers the potential to reduce patient dose. 

Broad range of applications
The combination of needle-based detectors, standard phosphor plates with specific cassettes and image resolution mode make the DX-G ideal for a broad range of applications:
• General radiography
• Orthopedics - extremities
• Dental
• Pediatrics and neonatal
• Full Leg / Full Spine

It offers two different image resolution modes: 100 µm pixel pitch (10 pixels/mm) and 150 µm pixel pitch (6.7 pixels/mm).

Maximum productivity and smooth workflow

The drop-and-go buffer and fast preview eliminate waiting times and facilitate a continuous workflow within the department. The five-cassette drop-and-go buffer can handle a mix of different sizes of both needle-based detectors an cassette handling makes DX-G highly productive and user-friendly. Using DX-G as a central digitizer in the radiography department, multiple examination rooms can be supported. With its small footprint, it can fit into the tightest spaces, including the X-ray room or even a narrow corridor.d standard phosphor plates. The automatic

The right choice

To eliminate any confusion, needle-based detector cassettes are gray, while standard phosphor plate cassettes are orange, so that there is no chance of the user making a mistake when selecting the desired cassette. Each plate has an embedded memory that stores the data entered during identification by no-touch radiofrequency tagging. Thus, the identification data and images are linked from the beginning throughout the entire digital processing system.
